What is room in the roof insulation? (RITR)
Loft conversions are becoming increasingly popular home improvements as a way to add extra usable loft space to properties, whether designed as a bedroom or home office. To get the maximum from any conversion, though, you need the correct type of insulation. Room in the roof insulation is designed specifically to insulate rooms that have been converted from lofts. It is the ideal replacement for standard loft insulation seen in unconverted spaces.
But why is finding the best type of product so important? The simple fact is that much of the heat lost in any property goes through the roof. Room in the roof insulation helps to combat this type of heat loss and keeps more heat inside.
This process, in turn, helps to save you money on energy bills and reduce how much energy you use. Therefore, it is wise to arrange for the installation of room in the roof insulation for a newly converted or already converted space.
How does room in the roof insulation work?
Although you might think that standard loft insulation materials are fine for newly converted rooms, this is not true. When any roof space is turned into a room, you might require a different product type for maximum energy-saving performance. Room in the roof insulation fits behind any new walls and between gaps in joists to help keep more heat inside and stop energy from being wasted.
If you do not have this sort of specialist product fitted, the new room may well be too hot in the Summer and too cool in winter! A poor quality product in the new space could also mean the rest of your home feels colder than it should in winter. Room in the roof insulation, though, holds the heat in winter and keeps it out in Summer, saving you money and always meaning you feel comfortable.
What is the installation procedure?
Although you can try to insulate a room in the roof yourself, it usually is best left to qualified experts. This sees qualified professionals install the product for safer and better results. As this type of high-grade product cannot be purchased by the public, it really is best left to the experts. Installation can be completed within one day usually so you can start to reap the benefits as soon as possible.
What will installing room in the roof insulation cost?
As with any improvements to your home, there will be an initial upfront installation cost. It is worth bearing in mind, though, that it should save you money over the long term on energy bills. Plus, there are grants and funding from Energy Companies and Local Councils that help make it even easier.
How do I know if I have room in the roof insulation already?
The simplest way to tell if you have room in the roof insulation is when you struggle to get your property warm, or your heating bills are sky high! A good tip, too, is having a qualified professional carry out a survey to look at your insulation requirements. If you would rather check yourself, you can look in your room in the roof space for the material between joists. For boarded down rooms, you might need to lift a board up to check the type of material.
